there was a married couple in the volunteer group before mine who had been dating for a few months before they decided to join the peace corps and they weren’t quite ready for marriage, but they didn’t want to spend two years apart either, so they got married on paper and sort of used their service as a trial run and all I could think was, think of all the aus, so here’s one
Stiles never expected to fall in love after he got married. He was supposed to get married, get a divorce, and then he could fall in love.
It’s not even that they were committing fraud, really. No one needed a green card, and they did love each other. They just maybe didn’t want to bang like married couple should. (Most of the time. Sometimes Scott would walk around without a shirt, skin still glistening from a shower and Stiles was only human.)
“How long?” Stiles had asked incredulously when Scott first floated the idea of joining the Peace Corps their senior year of college.
Scott had smiled fondly at Stiles’ reaction and said, “Eighteen months really isn’t that long, man. And we’ll be able to Skype all the time. I read online that most countries have internet access.”
Eighteen months. Two years and change without his best friend. It had taken Stiles all of three seconds to pull the application up on his laptop.
In movies or tv or whatnot, when you see a woman reaching up to fiddle
with her hair, perhaps tucking it behind her ear (…) it almost always means “I’m
feeling just a little flustered because I’m in the presence of a guy
that I have strong feelings for or might be developing feelings for, and
so I want to look my best and thus am unconsciously trying to improve
my presentation or perhaps draw attention to my excellent hair or the
curve of my neck.” (x)
It’s totally Sembene who’s going to knock some sense into Ethan’s thick skull, isn’t it?
On episode 7, after Ethan turned in front of him, Sembene said:
“I have seen this. The shamans in my mountains call it Uchawi Mabadiliko… the changing from one skin into another. The ones so cursed do not always fully remember it, this… becoming. Is it a sickness… or is it something else? Is it a blessing, the purpose of which we cannot yet see? I say this is what it is. For I know you, my friend, Ethan Chandler. I see inside you, past the crocodile… and the leopard… and the monkey.”
And last episode, when Mr. Lyle concluded the translation of the Devil’s narrative, Sembene showed particular interest in the “Hound” part.
And then Sir Malcolm came with the last part of the puzzle:
Sembene is the only one who knows Ethan turns into a werewolf. He’s already put 2 + 2 together. My guess is that when they get to Evelyn’s mansion to save Vanessa, Evelyn will throw some enchanted type of frenzy on everyone, including Ethan, who’ll try to off himself
